Travis: We know what's required

Lewis talks gametime, starting and reaching goals come the end of the campaign

After an accomplished 45 minutes on Saturday, Rovers youngster Lewis Travis has his eyes firmly on a first team start at Portsmouth on Tuesday night.

The 20-year-old was happy with his performance against Oldham, and now wants to build on that at Fratton Park in midweek.
 
And he admits a start from "mean the world" to him, but knows he must grab the opportunity with both hands if and when it does arrive.
 
“In terms of helping the team and giving energy, I would probably say it was my best performance in the first team," Travis says when reflecting on his weekend display.
 
“I want to start my first league game now. It would mean the world but if I get the opportunity then I know what I need to do.
 
“Every time I’ve come on I’ve tried to show the boss what I can do. It shows that he trusts me. It doesn’t bother him about experience of the name on the back of the shirt. If he can trust you, he’ll throw you in.
 
“Every game we try to win. This one would be great to win. The two-game weeks in the space of four or five days are hard, but we all know what we need to do as a team."
 
And despite not winning on Saturday, Travis says things are still looking good for Rovers, ahead of the final 15 games of the campaign.
 
“It was 18 unbeaten. No team in the world can go unbeaten all season, every team has an off-day and we want it to just be a blip for us.
 
“We’ve given ourselves a good platform. The teams above us will drop points and we know exactly what we need to do to get promoted," he concludes.
